First let me say that we enjoyed our stay for the most part. We had room 14 on the second level and could see the Harbor across Highway 1. It is within walking distance. Our room was clean, which is most important to me. Our bed was just awful, every time you moved the springs would be loud and sound like they were coming out of the mattress. It was obviously OLD. The furniture was well worn and very rickety. I was pleasantly surprised to find we had a little fridge and a microwave. The fridge did freeze EVERYTHING we put in it....but that was not too big of a deal. The bathroom was very spacious and clean and I really loved the touch of shampoo/conditioner/lotion and shower cap, even if I didn't use them. Big, white, fresh towels were appreciated.
One thing we found "cheesy" was that we had no a/c or heat unit in the room. I know its on the coast BUT when you come in late from walking the harbor - it can be COLD. We found a space heater neatly tucked away to use.....I was not comfortable leaving it on all night so it was chilly.
The bay window was very charming and you could open both side of it but the traffic was very loud since we weren't far off of Highway 1. I live in the Sierras so road noise is not something I'm used. Even with them closed you could still hear it. I did look forward to the fog horn in the Harbor, which lulled me to sleep. Maid service was spot on, which I LOVED coming back in from the beach to a clean, made up room.
Staff was SUPER nice and friendly, and check in and out was very quick! The continental breakfast was cereal, danishes and juice and we appreciated that they kept it going until 1030am for us late risers on vacation.
Decent rate but I think I would request a remodeled room and one with central heat and air so you dont catch fire with a space heater. I have attached lots of photos!
